PayPal is an easy, secure, online payment service. Use your PayPal account to send money and accept payments. You can send money to online merchants or from friends, family, and individual sellers, and receive money from them as well.
You add your bank account, credit card, or debit card details to your online PayPal account. PayPal stores that data. And when you check out at a site that takes PayPal, or you need to pay an individual, your payment information is already saved. There’s no hassle when checking out across different websites. You can use PayPal at over 18,000 merchants including eBay, Best Buy, iTunes, Etsy, Groupon, Netflix, Overstock, Home Depot, Zara, and Dollar General.
Your PayPal cash is automatically sent to your PayPal account. Payment is sent to the same email address used for your InboxDollars account. There is no eGift card to look for you in your email.
There is no fee for you to use PayPal to purchase any goods or services, but if you receive money on PayPal there may be a small transactional fee.

There are daily and monthly limits to how much money you are able to add to your account with PayPal Cash. You can add up to $1,500 per day or up to $5,000 per month into your PayPal account. If you have reached your daily or monthly cap, you must wait until the following day or month before you can use PayPal cash reload.
You can check your PaPal account balance when you log into your home or Wallet page. This page will also show any incoming funds or pending balance. To see a detailed list of all the payments that you have sent or received, visit your “Activity” page. Select “Activity” in the top navigation bar.
You will need to have either a confirmed bank account or a credit card to link to your PayPal account so that you can send payments. You can receive payments without a confirmed bank account or a credit card, but you will not be able to withdraw those funds or spend them.
If you have a valid PayPal account established, you can request a paper check. Another option could be to obtain a PayPal Debit Card so that you can withdraw account funds at an ATM.
Yes, you can use funds in your PayPal account to buy gift cards to over 250 different brands. These brands include Xbox, GameStop, Google Play, Home Depot, Walmart, eBay, Target, Ulta Beauty, CVS Pharmacy, Macy’s, and Nordstrom.
PayPal funds do not expire. You can leave them in your account for as long as you would like. If there is no activity on your account for a prolonged period of time, PayPal may be required to send the funds to your state marked as “abandoned funds”. This usually will not happen unless your account has been inactive (no logins) for three years or more. It’s recommended that you log in and use your PayPal account at least once a year. If you want to keep funds in a PayPal account for a longer period of time without making purchases or withdrawals, it would be better to open a banking account.
No, you can select a different payment method. PayPal is InboxDollars’ most popular payment method, but you can also receive payment as a bank account check, prepaid Visa credit card, or an eGift card of your choice. eGift card payments are available to nearly 200 merchants including Google Play, Amazon, Gamestop, Walmart, CVS Pharmacy, and Target.
